Happy Monday! We've slowly eased into our first full week of school this week and the students seem to be settling nicely into the daily routines in their own classrooms. By now you should have had contact from each of your children's teachers through their Friday folder so you have some idea of how things are going. Our teachers make a great effort to keep you informed. Please do the same for them by contacting them when you have a concern. Schoolspeak is the platform we use for all of our school communications - both from the office and from each of the classrooms. Here we post all announcements, volunteer sign-ups, and updated student grades. You can also use it to email anyone on the staff. If you are unable to access your SchoolSpeak account, please email me or Mrs. Steinbrecher in the office. We will send you your username and password and are happy to help you navigate the site if you haven't been on it yet.
Each Friday we attend Mass at Saint Mary and Saint Joseph Parish. One class prepares for Mass and the students in that class read the readings and serve. This week the 6th grade class will be preparing the Mass. This class also has the opportunity to receive the sacrament of reconciliation following Mass. Thank you to our pastors who take the time to stay after Mass and hear confessions!
Just a reminder to continue to monitor your children for any symptoms of COVID 19 before sending them to school. Often the symptoms can be very mild. This makes it even more important that you are monitoring your own health and the health of your children before sending them to school. Call or email me or the office if you ever have a question about sending your children to school. Parents, if you are experiencing symptoms or are waiting on test results, you should keep your children home until you know you are negative.
This week our Caught Being a Christian Award goes to Sarah Erickson. Sarah was caught being a Christian by Mrs. Brown. Sarah practiced kindness by going out of her way to make a new student feel welcomed. Great job, Sarah!
Have a wonderful week!
